Ron Paul, Ralph Nader set to announce combined 2012 presidential ticket

A major announcement is planned in the next few weeks, but I have received the scoop from Nader spokeswoman Durachka Pervaprelskaya that Ralph Nader has agreed to to run for Vice President on an independent ticket with Ron Paul for President and will try to get on the ballot in all states and DC.

Ralph Nader ran as a Green Party candidate for President in 1996 and 2000, and as an independent in 2004 and 2008. Ron Paul ran as a Libertarian in 1988, and as a Republican in 2008, as well as serving multiple terms in Congress as a Republican. In 2008, he endorsed Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin in the general election.

According to Ms. Pervaprelskaya they will seek the endorsement of the Green, Libertarian and Constitution Parties and will run on multiple ballot lines where that is permitted and qualify as independents in any state where they can’t secure an existing ballot line.

Paul and Nader have been increasingly cooperating lately on antiwar and anti-corporatist issues. According to the agreement that allows them to work together, they will focus the vast majority of the campaign on issues where they agree, such as those put forward by the Campaign for Liberty’s founding “we agree” statement.

Ms. Pervaprelskaya said that the timing of the announcement is being moved up due to concerns about potential independent runs by Donald Trump (currently running as a Republican), Mayor Michael Bloomberg of NYC, former Governor Jesse Ventura of Minnesota, Roseanne Barr, and progressive candidate Robert Milnes of New Jersey, who intends to run with an as yet unidentified female libertarian VP candidate. She refused to comment on the all-party and independent system of the US Parliament, Inc., and any issues involving petition gathering contracts.

Ms. Pervaprelskaya assured me that Ron Paul is fully on board, although his office refused to comment, saying they would prefer to hold off until the official announcement.

Stay tune for additional developments in this rapidly breaking story.

    I am so excited to see that all my internet posting has finally paid off. I expect a congratulatory phone call from Ellen Page any minute now!

    I’m shocked Kucinich was left off this ticket.
    Nader is very forgiving – it is reported Ron Paul drove a Nova while an undergrad at Gettysburg College and applied for a refund of his mandatory PIRG student fee at Duke.

    Horsefeathers! While at Gettysburg College the future Dr. Paul drove a Studebaker Lark. His ’54 Hudson Jet finally gave out so he went with another winner!

    is planning to run for the Presidental nomination the rational given was the lack of serious competition for the slot left him no other alternative but to “run run run”. He believes the can offer the country a new leash on life. He offered his sincere fangs for all the support. As to who will have second “Spot” on the ticket, he is looking for someone well “heeled” who can “foot the bill”, and who will stay with him during the long campaign. Some candidates just won’t sit still for that, however, and only time will tell what we’re in fur.

    I sure hope these aren’t all April Fool’s posts. It gets annoying.

    I am annoyed there are so few. Very shameful for IPR.

    Too bad this seems like it is an April Fool’s joke, because we need some alternative to the Republi-Crats bull **** . Can we get Bernie Sanders on board too, while we’re dreaming?

  9. Melty

    Gravel’s dedicated to direct democracy (national ballot initiative) stuff, and has no interest in running for any office …he won’t feel left out

  10. Kimberly Wilder

    Wonder if we should put a big banner across the top that says “April Fool’s”

    The story that Nader and Paul were running on the same ticket came up in one of my husband’s green networks as a big secret someone was sharing…

    Anyone who wants to make an April fool’s day Joke/Lie , must do it regarding his/her own life, not peoples’ life.
